We love Will Smith and his amazing family for many reasons, from how funny and entertaining they can be, to how inspiring and motivational they can also be.

Recently Buzzfeed broke down a bunch of times this year that the family made the year even better, and here’s some moments we found uniquely inspiring!

When Will and Ellen recreated the Fresh Prince!

I wanna thank @ellenpompeo for blessing the table this week with such a candid conversation. What I love about Ellen is that she’s willing to sit in the fire and burn if need be. She knows conversations about race are risky and aren’t without criticism.  She also knows that’s she’s learning along the way HOW to talk about race (like we all are) and will sometimes make mistakes a long the way (like many of us do). BUT… she’s not afraid and is willing to learn, she’s willing to fight, she’s willing to listen, she’s willing to understand, and she’s willing to take responsibility. In my eyes, her commitment and FEARLESSNESS makes her a gangsta’ ally in the mission to unify 🙌🏽✨Her episode is streaming now- link in profile @redtabletalk #RedTableTalk 📸 @stanevansphoto

Will and Jada have an inspirational marriage, and part of the beauty is that they never take themselves TOO seriously. Like this time he made fun of her outfit!

When Will showed he is not too cool to learn a new thing, like salsa lessons with Marc Anthony!
